Your guide to graduate aid and affordability.

Our Office of Financial Aid works hard to help you understand your options.

All Graduate Students

Most graduate students are eligible to receive a Federal Stafford unsubsidized loan each academic year (not to exceed a lifetime limit of $138,500). To find out your financial aid eligibility, simply fill out the FAFSA and use Stephens' FAFSA Code 002512. Graduate students must submit a FAFSA every academic year to apply for financial aid.

Financial Aid eligibility will be determined based on the information submitted on the FAFSA and enrollment, and is dependent upon admission to a graduate program.

M.S.L. and M.Ed. Students

Students in these programs are eligible for three additional grant programs. To apply for any of these programs, simply talk to your admissions counselor during the admission process.

  • Community Connections Grant: Do you live or work in Boone or Cole county? The Community Connections Grant offers a tuition reduction of $50 per credit hour. 
  • Ideal Grant: Are you a Stephens alumna? The Ideal Grant offers a tuition reduction of $75 per credit hour.
  • Parent Grant: Do you currently have a student enrolled in Stephens' undergraduate program? We offer a 30% tuition reduction through our Parent Grant.
